This is the story of how backyard tiny houses are helping to solve California’s housing problem, specifically in Clovis city where city planners have made it easier for homeowners to build a backyard tiny cottage on their current lot. Here’s how it works…

They are giving homeowners three house plans to choose from (for free). The designs are 400-square-feet or less and are only available to homeowners in the area who have a lot with access to an alleyway, which is common in Old Town Clovis. There are other perks and incentives, too. But what’s the catch? This is having an overall very positive impact on the community so it’s a win/win for the city and the homeowners. Do you think other townships should take notice of this strategy?

These are two tiny houses on wheels joined together permanently to make one big tiny house!

This is pretty cool because I’ve never really seen it done before, although I would probably prefer to keep the units separate but adjoined by a deck instead, kind of like this one (also built by Molecule Tiny Homes). How about you? What do you think of this design idea?

This is a 1966 Greyhound Bus turned Tiny House in Yucca Valley, California.

The interior has been completely redone as well as the mechanics of the bus and now it’s an incredible bus conversion vacation that you can book a stay in if you want to. So what do you think, is a bus conversion something that might be on your horizon?

This is the Vista Boho Escape Tiny House Vacation in Long Beach, California. It’s the new Escape Vista Boho design that starts at $39,900 and now you can vacation in it if you want to try it out. I love this design because they somehow squeezed everything you would want (main floor sleeping, comfortable couch, work/dining table) into a less-than-22-foot tiny house.

It’s actually 21’6″ in length if you want to be exact. And 26’6″ if you include the trailer hitch. When I mentioned, “everything you would want” earlier, here’s what I meant… You have main floor sleeping, a comfortable couch that also converts into an additional bed, a work/dining table that flips up/down, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. What’s not to like here?
